I Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
I Peter 4:8 Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.
Today I decide to love with no reserves. Love must not be expressed with conditions. My Heavenly Father loves me regardless of my state in life. His love for me draws me to Him and keeps me within His reach. I will love as my Father loves. I will not place high demands on others to conform to me. Instead, I will love them, even when it hurts. There are moments when those around me bring me to a place of pain that makes me want to run away from them. In the moments that tell me to hide, I choose to reach back in love. When circumstances in my relationships say, “Run”, I will stay. When rejection raises its ugly head of regret, I will accept with no strings attached. Today, I choose to love.
Pray: Father, will you please give me the courage to love today. I desire to walk out your command to love in each relationship I possess today. I need you to give me the necessary strength to love and I trust you to fill me with your ability to do so. Thank you Lord for aiding me as I walk in Your love today. Amen
